Shelton in 2018 on why the U.S. should link the dollar again to gold:

"To confront U.S. indebtedness, we need to restore fiscal discipline and sound money through gold convertibility. We make America great again by making America’s money great again.” 

Shelton on returning to the gold standard:

“Money is meant to serve as a reliable measure."

This week, Trump announced that he plans to nominate Shelton and Christopher Waller to fill the two remaining seats on the Federal Reserve Board of governors. 

Judy Shelton was confirmed last year as the U.S. representative for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

In that time, Shelton missed 11 of its 26 board meetings, worse than all but two of the bank’s 23 current directors.
